During the blog-less years, I took a course in Picture Research. It was something I had done a bit of as part of a job and I really enjoyed it. So I took this course, more out of personal interest than vocational and I got a distinction for the course. And so it joined the other not particularly useful things on my CV that aren't of much use to anyone, least of all me.
But I enjoyed doing it. So I was pleased to discover Pinterest, which allows me to fulfil my picture research obsessions without it actually being my job.
I've added it to the blog at the side (making the old place more homely!) and here are a few of my boards.
